“In connection with our religious aims and beliefs, we must promote economic security. The preaching of economic security among us is by no means as widespread and intensive as the circumstances demand. No other one thing is more needed among us at this time than greater economic power. Better positions for our men and women, more business employment for our boys and girls and bigger incomes will follow our economic security. We shall be secure in nothing until we have economic power. A beggar people cannot develop the highest in them, nor can they attain to a genuine enjoyment of the spiritualities of life.
Our men, women and children should be taught to believe in the capacity of our group to succeed in business, in spite of the trials and failures of some of them. Trials and failures in business are by no means confined to any particular group of people. Some business ventures of all people fail. We have many men and women among our people who are qualified, both by training and experience, who are shining lights in the business world of all the people. It is a sad weakness in us as people that we have withheld the very encouragement, support and patronage that would have made some of our worthy business ventures a grand success. And worst of all, have joined in the condemnations of them when they failed. Except in cases of actual dishonesty, discourtesy, lack of service and actual unreliability, our business enterprises in every field of endeavor should have fullest of confidence co-operations and patronage whenever and wherever they can be given.” – Noble Drew Ali
In the mission for progress it must be understood that the Moorish American community can not demonstrate effective social and political power without simultaneously displaying economic power, creating a strong financial base and networking system and projecting intelligence in the arena of financial decision making. These critical elements formulate the basis which generates the circumstance for a paradigm shift regarding the transference in “World Power.” Asiatics, whether Moorish American or not, must learn the western system of politics and realize that the election of Asiatic officials to high office, prestigious positions in large multinational corporations, commissions, agencies, governmental seats and the like, will generate relatively little to increase the power of the Moorish/ Asiatic community or emancipate it from its subordinate relationship to the Non-Asiatic community. Neither will it measurably enhance the probability of its future survival as the issues of social power are a collective issue, not an individual conquest for social positioning.
Ultimately, the power of “position” reflects the power of the constituency it represents and which supports it. As long as the Moorish American community is impotent and weak so will be its representatives, no matter how high their office or (in the) black their bank balance; and the Moorish/Asiatic community will remain relatively weak as long as it remains in economic disorder and socially disorganized, and will not accumulate and effectively utilize any level of significant wealth. The Moorish community can amass power and influence by displaying an effective social organizational structure and also by effectively utilizing organized wealth that is accumulated by (Moorish) communal financial programs and institutions. Once Moors learn and understand that a great amount of power in the Western Hemisphere is centrally organized around economic organizations, i.e. Corporations, Banks, Investment Agencies/Firms and Governmental agencies that are designated to mandate and control the responsibility of the economy, the Moors in this day and time will gain a greater (collective) position in society and amongst the family of nations. Once this is understood, it will also be known and understood that the one that controls the economic resources is provided with a continuous and stable base of power in any society or social unit or conglomeration. This basic knowledge teaches that the Economic “powers that be” also control “who gets what and what caliber of what the who’s get.” In knowing “who gets what” also increases one’s understanding of what will be produced, for whom will it be produced, how much will be produced, when will it be produced, what will be the cost, who will decide who will be employed, how will the goods and services be distributed and what type of technology will be used in the production of the product and so on and so forth.
For the Moorish community to maximize its economic and political power, it must maximize its wealth, its understanding of wealth and its ability to plan to maintain wealth. This is done by organizing an economic system by which it can acquire, produce and distribute resources in such a manner that is able to provide for its own needs and can use them for their (Moorish) own socio-political interests and affairs. The complete utilization and maximization of resources and economic power of the Moorish community require that the Moors honestly and realistically access their financial structure and educational system regarding economics and business. This economic analysis process also requires the Moors also evaluate their relationships with other Economic communities and power sources. Therefore, to realistically accomplish any level of success within the economic and business arenas, Moors must drastically restructure their internal structure regarding the dynamics of economics and also their external relations with national and international communities.
In the restructuring of the Moorish Community and Economic system, the philosophy of a “nation-within-a-nation” must stand firm in the minds of each Moorish citizen as each decision must reflect the whole as a unified force and a cohesive and organized power. This must become the current mission of the Moors in the Western Hemisphere while also addressing the following issues:
- An economy that is heavily dependent on external businesses, product suppliers and markets
- The increased desire to purchase products that display the illusion of wealth (Living for the Jones”) which also increase the value of imported goods and services that come into the community while there is a decline in the value and need of exported services
- The decrease in per-capita income which has a direct baring on credit scores and household maintenance
- A high birth rate, a decrease in the desire for education which creates an increase in unskilled labor, low rates of increase in labor productivity and a small monetized market
- Much of the developed portion of the economy is owned by foreign entities which affects and limits entrepreneurship and effective financial knowledge regarding the future of the Moorish economy.
- Businesses lack capital as the local markets are limited and the projection for growth appears restricted which increases incidents of credit default.
- Savings rates are low and what is saved is usually not invested in a progressive Moorish community.
- Unemployment is high, government assistance is needed to help pay for basic needs. Also, a great mismanagement of funds that is received from governmental aid and assistance.
- The economic and social infrastructure of the Moorish community are relatively disarranged, i.e. fragmented, disunited and disorganized.
- An educational establishment structured after the political and socio-economic dynamics of the economically dominant group so as to continue the miseducation and training of the Moorish youth thereby perpetuating its underdevelopment, noncompetitiveness and dependency on “defacto” powers in this hemisphere.
Until these issues are addressed by intelligent and proactive Moorish Americans for the benefit of Moorish Americans, there will continue to be problems within the communities and the socio-economic structures of the Asiatic’s in the Americas. The characteristics of underdevelopment that is listed above are the results of the adaptation and the adoption of foreign values, beliefs and standards. However, as the results further engrain themselves in the everyday psyche of the Moorish in this land, the results soon become the causes as the community will subject themselves to underdevelopment, miseducation, social disarray and economic dependence. The way the Moorish American economic system has been structured and organized is directly related to the history and current nature of the socio-economic relationships between the Moorish and the foreign powers that “Be” and to the ways in which the Moorish community has been and is affected by the national and international industrial and economic powers established by the policy creators that are placed in power by the foreign powers that “Be.”
To correct these issues, the Moorish must reduce any and all signs of economic subjugation by creating their own policies, community agencies and outreach organizations, financial lending institutions, social and medicinal security, progressive business strategies, and insurance benefits. The Moorish community must learn how to effectively “utilize” money to create capital while creating the continuous process of the transformation of capital as commodities into the retransformation of capital as commodity into more money, then more capital. The modern Moors must honestly access their current position, potentialities and resources, as well as those of their adversaries, to properly set effective strategies and tactics in action. The idea of a cohesive and unified nation-within-a-nation must become a reality in effect as it is the key to power, progress, independence and solidarity.
Another entry toward power and independence lies within the development of a Moorish Stock Market. This meeting place for buyers and sellers of product and securities allows the Moorish to involve themselves in the traditional European American capital market systems. This entry, with large numbers of well trained Moorish financial brokers and innovative business owner, would create the atmosphere for the assisting of the Moorish community in achieving economic and political self-determination and power. An increased number of Moorish American brokers and business owners, with an in-depth knowledge of the operations of capital markets, would help create the educational platform for finance, business and credit and asset management. The cohesive plan in the arena of finance and business would increase awareness and the ability to make appropriate financial decisions as Moorish consumers, community leaders and heads of institutions would work in their best interests and in the best interests of the community (nation-within-a-nation) as a whole.
Remember, the Moorish American community cannot become a powerful socio-economic and political factor in America until they (we) establish a significant presence in the national and international capital market systems. Accomplishments in this area of development must begin with the motivation of large numbers of Moorish Americans being successfully employed and self-employed while functioning in these markets so that the entire Moorish community, world wide, can benefit from their operational and practical knowledge, experience and expertise.
The Moorish Americans “must” organize and structure themselves “for themselves and by themselves.” The constant search for aid should not become a greater priority than the uniting and utilization of Moorish descendents as their own source of resources. Moors have done a dynamic job at supporting foreign entities and their agendas without outside assistance; therefore, Moors can equally support their own agendas, interests, values and economic programs. The formation, organization and structuring of Moorish systems of self-management and self-control is a paramount project for the 21st century. This is the revealing of the blueprint for Moorish Power.
